“Just relax sir”, the nurse at the hospital kept telling the young father to be, but it made no difference.
The young man’s pregnant wife was in labour, about to give birth to their first child and he was a nervous wreck.
After what seemed like a week or longer, a nurse came out of the delivery room with the happy news, “It’s a girl!” she announced to the young man.
“A girl! A girl! Thank God!” the new young father said with a huge smile on his face.
The nurse asked him why he was so happy that he had a daughter rather than a son.
“Can’t you see”, the new young father replied, “she will never have to go through what I just went through!”
